Could she possibly volunteer to walk dogs at a local shelter?

Discuss her condition and the need to have another volunteer walking a dog with her?

Of course, after she has been diagnosed by her doctor.

Best of luck finding an activity for your Energizer bunny🐇🐇

Do some research into what activities are available for senior citizens with dementia in your city. Check out adult daycare. You can call your local area Agency on Aging and ask them if they know of any activities your aunt could participate in. If you are with her all day, try to interest her in puzzles or listening to music. You can also offer her a choice. Lunch and possibly some window shopping. Or, dinner out and if she is capable of following the story of a movie, take her. But this shouldn’t happen every day.

If its been been a while since she saw her doctor, she may need to be seen. She may be having anxiety issues and that’s why she can’t sit still.

She is so young for this. This could be anxiety and there are meds to help.
